Top Ten Most Overrated Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson

Doesn't deserve to be played at EVERY party, sang by EVERY teenager, or played on the radio EVERY 5 minutes. It's not THAT good of a song.

It doesn't deserve to be the #1 song of 2015, let alone one of the biggest songs of all time. - NiktheWiz

I saw a little kid sing this at a talent show. *shudders* - Emberleap

These kind of songs are good once a year, maybe at a new years party? Other than that, they need to be left alone for the year
This song is overhyped for NO reason, like there's nothing special about it, unless it's played once a year - Aquaturtle

22 Fancy - Iggy Azalea

In The chorus that little kiddish voice is somewhat catchy.

CLUELESS

This song is so obnoxious. It sounds like little kids are singing it, if you
call this music, you must be deaf. every time I hear this song I cringe.
I'm sorry, but I really don't like it.

WHO that WHO that I-G-G-Y? YOU SHOULD YOU SHOULD G-T-F-O!

23 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

This is a good song! Although it might be just a bit overrated. Still, it's great! - micahisthebest

This is not a bad song... It's actually fantastic. No wonder so many people ' love it. - Napstablook

The song is (or was. Nobody remembers it nowadays) overrated by the fact people didn't know other sad songs that were waaay better

By no means a bad song and it definitely should have been at least nominated an Oscar for Best Original Song for the 2016 Awards.

But even then, I'd consider the song overrated. It's literally played EVERYWHERE to the point where the song starts to lose its novelty and just becomes a bore. And speaking of its subject matter, great tribute to the late Paul Walker (RIP), but I'd rather go for "So Far Away" by Avenged Sevenfold. - CrimsonShark

24 Crank That - Soulja Boy

Nobody likes it, therefore its not over rated

All the idiots tried to look cool dancing to it and it got big and soulja boy got 15 minutes of fame, and now works at burger king

Pure cancer. One time I saw a guy dabbing to this song, and he called it a "classic". I think I lost brain cells from that statement.

25 Hey Ya! - Outkast

I like this song. It's not that overrated. Yes, the lyrics are repetitive but it has a good sound to it.

I love this song so much! Yes! Another good song with no bad words! Rap songs with no bad words are cool.

Actually I'm fine with rap with cursing but I said that because I like rap as a whole. - AlphaQ

This song isn't bad, and is one of the better mainstream songs of the 2000s, but people only know outkast for this and the way you move. Not for each of their incredible flow and storytelling

Boring, generic song, that really goes nowhere! Except to the part of the brain that triggers annoyance X10

26 Rolling in the Deep - Adele

I've kept hearing this song on the radio and on T.V. and no one will shut up about it. Same thing goes for Someone Like You.

HOW DARE YOU! This song is amazing and got Adele, one of the greatest singer-songwriters of our era, the attention she deserved. But everyone gets their own opinion, I guess.

This was probably the single most annoying song I have heard on the radio. they literally played it once every 25 minutes. I'm like, who actually LIKES this? The singing is atrocious, the song puts me to sleep, and I practically memorized this song caus I heard it so many times.
Two words: Truly Annoying

27 Like a Virgin - Madonna

Madonna herself is good. Madonna fans! Have you ever heard of the album "Erotica"? NO! Well you should because it is underrated and her best album. "Oh, thanks but we'd rather listen to "Like A Virgin"! "

Madonna sucks, she deserves #1. - anchor_th

In response to the first comment, yes, practically everyone's heard of Erotica in 1992 because it was so damn controversial.

Let's get something straight. I love Madonna. I do not love this song.

It pales in comparison to Vogue, Express Yourself, Ray of Light, Frozen, Living for Love, Messiah and Rain.

Also, Into the Groove, more overrated than Like a Burden (if you want a song from LAV, Material Girl or Over and Over, just saying.)

28 Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

Why is this song so popular? It is absolutely horrendous, with an awful chorus that sticks in your head in the worst way possible and a hilariously terrible attempt at rapping. There is nothing good about this song, yet it is somehow a huge hit. If 95% of the population hated this song, the remaining 5% would still easily justify calling it overrated.

First off, who names a song party rock anthem? Second off, who names a band lmfao? I never saw how this song became the biggest hit last summer. It has no flavor or substance - queen11

Probably the only good song by a band called, "LMFAO? " What kind of name is that? I like this song, but it's not he absolute best I've heard.

LMFAO is pure. Stairway to Heaven, Bohemian Rapsody, e tc. d on't deserve to be here.

29 Single Ladies - Beyonce

If you hate it then you should've put a lid on it!

Hey Kanye your girl Beyonce created on of the worst songs of all time!
Of all time!
Not to mention the video is really stupid. She has no lyrical depth whatsoever with this as a prime example of just how shallow she is.

Annoying, this deserves to be one. - LukeTargaryen

The start of the song has the "woop woop" like Stupid Hoe

30 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

Evanescence is a great band. And I understand that a lot of people love this song (I do like it also). However, I don't get why this song gets so much praise. I mean, I see that song getting a lot of views on YouTube and being number 1 on lists of "best evanescence songs" all around the internet (even on TheTopTens). There is a lot of songs from that band that deserves more praise than this song (The Other Side, Like You, Your Star, Going Under, My Immortal (my favorite), Everybody's Fool, Lithium, Sweet Sacrifice, Call Me When You're Sober, etc). Overrated doesn't means bad, it's just that it gets too much fame/praise. I like that song but really, better than My Immortal, Going Under and Everybody's Fool? Never. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

This song is good, but it will never be as much of a masterpiece as My Immortal.

I hate the piercing, forced screaming voice of the fat emo who sings this.
I can not even take this band serious. All songs sound the same and have pretty much the same lyrics.
But hey, emo teens don't demand high standards, huh?

Never understood how anyone could like this song.
It's absolutely overrated. Sounds like an Avril Lavigne song.

31 Poker Face - Lady Gaga

I can't stand this song it actually sucks. So overrated

Do you want to smoke weed then din

NO why? THIS SONG IS PURE GOLD

Yeah...this song just annoys me.

32 We Will Rock You - Queen

I swear to god, I got so mad when I saw Bohemian Rhapsody on the list (their best song, as rated as it needs) but not We Will Rock You (the MOST OVERRATED SONG IN HISTORY) First off, it's a boring sports anthem, with only drums and one guitar solo. Second off, 90 percent of the people that know this song have no idea what Queen is. Third, good GOD! I expected to see this as one of the top 10, and Bohemian Rhapsody is 7th? I know you can have opinions, but this... Good lord... I'm going to lay down for a second

This is such a dumb song. It took no skill to write, takes none to play, and the lyrics are really stupid, too.

You just listen to justin bieber and you don't know what real music is - Th3Zm0nst3r

I actually kind of agree with this. It's really good but I do think it's overrated.

This is more overrated than let it go

33 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem

Seriously, what's so special about this garbage? Except that two famous sweepers are carrying it

You may think it's garbage because you don't know the storyline. That's why people don't like All About That Bass - AlphaQ

What?! How can you call Eminem a clown? Eminem, one of, IF NOT THE GREATEST lyricists and musicians of all time! How?! YOU ARE AN IDIOT! YOU REALLY don't UNDERSTAND MUSIC

Eminem still is the best. Though I think Rihanna ruined it. Eminem still covered some of it to good.

This song rocks

34 Fight Song - Rachel Platten

It's so amazing that this song received so much praise and hate at the same time. If you go to the comment section of the music video for this song, you'll see tons of admiration for this song's "inspirational" message and when you look in places like Worst-Songs-of-2015 lists, this song gets so widely hated. Even a handful of Hillary Clinton's (who actually used this song for her speech) staff members hate this song. - NiktheWiz

35 I C** Blood - Cannibal Corpse
36 Material Girl - Madonna

Not deserving. Ever seen the video?

37 Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke

Maybe once Robin Thicke hits puberty this song will be okay. Probably not. Also, who was dumb enough to put Smells Like Teen Spirit, Stairway to Heaven, Imagine, and Bohemian Rhapsody on here? - chris.cg.102

Most popular song of 2013 is so annoying and there are better songs this year.

I still don't understand how a song that took 30 minutes to make got so popular. The song is a plague.

My mom does not let me listen to this song - mayamanga

38 Bennie and the Jets - Elton John

Elton John is overrated by so many old people it's not funny. - NuMetalManiak

39 Lose Yourself - Eminem

Number 10 on Best Songs Of All Time? If that isn't evidence that Eminem is overrated, I don't know what is! - yaygiants16

This song is overrated. And that means something's considering I'm an eminem fan. Seriously, not afraid and kings never die are 10x better than this

This song is amazing - harr4

It's good but it is no Rakim really or even Amoc

40 Watch Me - Silento

Now watch me whip? Now watch me Nae Nae? Its like a conversation between a horse and its rider. The rider says to watch him whip and then the horse says to watch him Nae Nae.

Crank That is overhated for sure. This is even WORSE and less hated. I'm confused right now...This song deserves to be hated the most. - AlphaQ

Why do people like this song? It is overrated because this song is so bad it doesn't deserve a rating above.5/10 - christangrant

This song is designed for 10 year olds on musical.ly, not for mainstream. TOO overrated - Aquaturtle
